Picea.

The spruce tree

XXXV.

At picea emittas nullos qud stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.

    Cotonea.

    The quince

    Emblema cciii.

    Poma novis tribui debere Cydonia nuptis
    Dicitur antiquus constituisse Solon.[1]
    Grata ori & stomacho cm sint, ut & halitus illis
    Sit suavis, blandus manet & ore lepos.

    Solon of old is said to have ordained that quinces be given to newly-weds, since these are pleasant both to mouth and stomach. As a result their breath is sweet, and winning grace drops from their lips.

    PLutarchus testis est in praeceptis connubialibus
    Cotonea, qud cor reficiant, suavmque ori ha-
    litum inspirent, olim Solonis lege novis coniugibus
    dari solita: ut admonerentur primo illo congressa o-
    mnia transigenda corde puro, ore, linguque ador-
    nata & pudica.

    Le Coing.

    LA coustume estoit selon
    L’Ordonnance de Solon,
    De donner de la Coingnasse
    A tous mariez nouveaux,
    Pour faire, qu’avec la grace,
    Du coeur & bouche pleine
    Sortissent de propos beaux
    Avec une bonne haleine.

    PLutarque tesmoigne en ses preceptes
    de mariage, que Solon ordonna par ses
    loix que lon donnast de la Coingnasse aux
    nouveaux mariez, raison qu’elle est bonne
    au coeur, & fait bonne bouche: fin qu’ils fus
    sent advertis que ceste premiere entree d’al
    liance conjugale il falloit que tout se fit a-
    vec un coeur pur, & une bonne bouche, avec
    une langue pleine de tous bon propos.

    Notes:

    1. antiquus...Solon, ‘Solon of old’. See Plutarch, Coniugalia praecepta, Moralia 138 D.
